Land Ecologies Unit 10 Rubric

Doing World Builders  in PowerPoint

Each person should make his/her individual set of slides.


Decide who will assemble each one of the biomes for which you created your land plants and animals. Each person will assemble the life forms for ONE of the biomes.  You will need to exchange pictures with your team mates.

Take all the plants and animals that belong to the biome that you are working on.  This means that you will be working with pictures that your group members created as well as the pictures that you made yourself or this one particular biome.

Lay out the text of your  PowerPoint presentation something like this


 Slide 1

This title screen introduces the biome that you are working on.

Combine all the plants and animals in your biome in this slide to make a scene.

 

Slide 2

Show where your biome is located on the map.

What are conditions like there?

Slide 3

Describe conditions in your biome.

Describe temperature, rainfall, seasonal variations, availability of food and water, and Primary Productivity in Kilocalories per Square Meter.

What problems do the life forms have to solve?

Slide 4

Describe your primary producers.

Tell about their size, appearance, growth habits and reproductive processes.

Slide 5

Tell about their size, appearance, growth habits and reproductive processes.
Slide 6

Describe your primary producers.

Tell about their size, appearance, growth habits and reproductive processes.

Slide 7

Describe your primary consumers.

What do they eat, how much do they weigh,  how do they reproduce and solve their life problems?  how long do they live?

 

Slide 8

Describe your primary consumers.

What do they eat, how much do they weigh,  how do they reproduce and solve their life problems?  how long do they live?

 

Slide 9

Describe your secondary consumers.

What do they eat, how much do they weigh,  how do they reproduce and solve their life problems?  how long do they live?

Slide 10

Describe your tertiary consumers if you have them in your biome.

What do they eat, how much do they weigh,  how do they reproduce and solve their life problems?  how long do they live?

 

Slide 11

Create a food web.  There are examples in the Biomes section.
 

 

Slide 12

Use this slide to explain what the food pyramid and the energy pyramid mean.

Explain what happens to the energy made available by the primary producers as it moves up the biosphere.

 

Slide 13

 Create an energy pyramid.

 


Once you have your text all laid out, select background pictures for your slides and add graphics as appropriate.  Attractive appearance contributes to your grade, as does demonstration of understanding of the scientific concepts involved. You may include additional material if you wish.
 Grading will be for these qualities:
  A  neat, complete, attractive, well written, links work, turned in on time.
  B  complete, links work, turned in no more than one week late.
C  problems: incomplete, links don't work,  language errors. turned in late.
